Guru Hari was raised by a Nepalese Father and Indian Mother in a cross cultural context near Rishikesh. His birthplace is between the Indian States Uttrakhand and Banbasa near the border of India and Nepal. From a young age he was drawn to a spiritual life from his mother Tara Devi, a Bhakti Yoga Guru and devotee of Lord Shiva. From an early age Hari rejoiced in and sung Mantra. He fast every Monday in honor of Mahadeva (Shiva) and performed other forms of Yoga with eagerness. Ready to set out from home at an early age of 11 years, he attended high school at Vishwavidyalaya virndavan mathura in Gurukul, near Brindavan Matura.
According to the ancient text, of the Mahabarata, this is Lord Krishna’s birthplace. At age 16 after high school graduation he surrendered himself to his guru Ji “Tiger Baba” in Pashupatinath, Katghmandu, Nepal. There he was initiated by “Tiger Baba” into the Nath family and pursued to live in a cave for 3 years. During this time Hari focused on spiritual learning and served many Gurus who came into his life and influenced and molded his thinking and lifestyle (Anadi Baba, Anupnath Yogi, Silent Baba, and world renowned Dudhari Baba). Time came to get foot loose and leave his humble abode and travel throughout India, Nepal, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, as a wandering ascetic. Realizing the need for the ancient scientific and spiritual system of Yoga in this modern day he founded the international yoga fellowship in 2012 and established “Hapi Hari Yoga Shala” in 2013 - Dharmshala set amidst the Himalayas, and Gokarna a peaceful beach town.
Presently “Shree Hari Yoga” teaches a traditional Hatha Yoga combined with classical knowledge, experiential understanding and wisdom, as well as a modern outlook. This style of Yoga teaching by “Shree Hari Yoga” is essentially a Nath Lineage tradition whch has been passed down through initiations by masters such as Goraknath and Patanjali Maharishi since the 9th Century. Guru Hari is also a Chef of Ayurvedic Food which is known in Yogi terminology, as Sattvic Food.
